  • How many offers will I receive?

    The number of offers you receive on any given day will vary based on the order volume within your area and the number of drivers in your area. Just as these factors fluctuate from day to day, so will the number of offers you receive. Be sure to turn on 'Spark Now' to receive offers at the most convenient times for you!

  • What type of orders will I deliver through the Spark Driver App?

    You will be delivering items typically purchased when grocery shopping in a Walmart store. The specific products will vary with each order you deliver.

  • Is there any equipment I need to bring with me while delivering?

    Some grocery orders will require the use of an insulated bag to ensure food safety standards. You can use an insulated bag of your choice that meets these standards. The bag must be in serviceable conditions (e.g., clean, there are no rips or tears, and the bag can be closed).

  • How much will I earn delivering though the Spark Driver App?

    As a driver, you will be paid for each delivery you complete. Each offer will list the minimum amount you will receive for completing the delivery.
    Deliveries are considered complete when the order is dropped off with the customer or returned to the store, if you are unable to complete drop-off to the customer.

  • How are earnings calculated?

    The Spark Driver App pay model is designed to ensure the earnings you receive are fair and transparent. With this, earnings are calculated based on a variety of factors including order pickup fee, number of orders, distance traveled, and time to complete the delivery.
    You may receive additional earnings after delivery completion if you experience delays at pick-up or complexities while completing the delivery. The earning adjustment will be shown as “incidentals” on the Completed Trips tab of the Spark Driver App within 24 hours of delivery completion.
    You will receive a minimum payment of $5 when a store cancels an order after you arrive for pick-up, instead of the offer price. This minimum payment may increase if you experience delays at pick up.

  • Are taxes being deducted from my earnings?

    Taxes are not deducted from your earnings. You are responsible for any deductions required by law.

  • I received a notification that my account is deactivated and think it was a mistake. What should I do?

    You may appeal this decision by emailing [email protected].
